Here is the next instalment of our You Tube channel, and it’s a Caking Tutorial How To Video on frozen buttercream transfers.
A frozen buttercream transfer (FBCT . . . is how some people refer to it) is a way to do specific pictures or images, logos by hand with your piping bag.
This is a technique that I love to use because it is actually pretty easy! You don’t have to be a skilled artist to trace with your piping bag . . . you just need to be able to follow the lines! It’s kind of like a paint by number for a caked. How great is that?
To make your buttercream for the FBCT, use your favourite recipe for buttercream, or try mine here. You will need a baking sheet, icing in piping bags fitted with the necessary tips, a template for your image, and a piece of wax paper large enough to cover your template. When you’ve got that, you’re ready to watch the video, follow the steps and voila, you will have a perfect hand piped image. I guarantee* (* I don’t really), you might not be able to follow the lines . . . or colour within them
Let me know what you think!
Do you have any go-to techniques that you always use when you’re caking or cookie decorating?
